secretary of state. republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham have called rice unthus worthy and unqualified for a promotion for her comments that an anti-muslim video triggered the benghazi attack that skilled four americans. president obama insisted the ambassador was simply making a presentation based on the available intelligence and had tough words for the senators. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity at the state department department, then i will nominate here. >> eliot: much more on that a little later in the program. the president also reached out to the g.o.p. on immigration reform and offered an idea that he would like to see from congress. >> obama: whatever process we have needs to make sure that border security's strong, needs to deal with employers effectively, needs to provide a pathway for the undocumented here needs to deal with the dream act kids and i think that's some
and lindsey graham are revisiting a plan they proposed together back in 2010. >> i think we have a darn good chance, using this blueprint, to get something done this year. the republican party has learned that being anti-illegal -- anti-immigrant doesn't work for them politically. and they know it. >> it's one thing to shoot yourself in the foot. just don't reload the gun. so, i intend not to reload this gun when it comes to hispanics. i intend to tear this wall down and pass an immigration reform bill that's an american solution to an american problem. we have nobody to blame but ourselves when it comes to losing hispanics. and we can get them back with an effort on our part. >> two years ago, president obama called schumer and graham's proposal a promising framework. >>> the greek parliament has approved an austerity budget for the next year. let's take a look at the early markets. cnbc's julia chatterly is live in london. greece had to do this, despite mass protest in the street. >> absolutely. one difference we saw was there was no reported violence, which is something we've seen over th
the roof off that room today. did you see this? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today that they want to have watergate-style hearings on the attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and that if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations that i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her
nation's foreign policy. schumer and graham talking their idea today. it includes a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants living in the united states. >> deportation is not going to work. fix it in a way we don't have a third wave of illegal immigration 20-years from now. that is what americans want they want to fix illegal immigration after all. they will do nothing until you secure the border be identified start paying taxes pay a fine for the law they broke. they can't stay unless they learn their language and they have to get in the back of the line. >> senator graham and i have talked and we are resuming the talks that were broken off two years ago. we are putting together a comprehensive detail blue print on immigration reform. it had the real potential for bipartisan support based on the theory that most americans are for legal immigration very much against illegal immigration. >> they are developing a document to make sure they are hiring them to work in the country. >> the death toll rising from a strong earthquake. 12 people killed.
his boxing gloves just yet. he took jabs from republicans led by john mccain and lindsay graham. they're up in arms about potential appointment of susan rice to secretary of state because of the fallout of the benghazi attacks. john mccain called those attacks the president's watergate and this morning he said rice mishandle the administration's respond. >> she's not qualified. anyone who goes on national television in defiance of the facts five days later we're all responsible for what we say and what we do. >> jennifer: he just said she's not qualified. not qualified. susan rice. the stanford phi beta cappa scholar, u.n. ambassador, not qualified. john mccain doubled down on his remarks with john carl. >> is she effectively disqualified from being secretary of state. you would oppose her nomination? >> yes. >> and we're talking filibuster, do whatever you could to block it. >> yes. >> jennifer: of course he would filibuster, in other words stall in the appointment dies. that's filibuster is what happened throughout president obama's term allowing his appointments to languish. in fac
. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with john mccain's clip if we can. dan, this is john mccain on -- john mccain by the way who voted to approve condoleezza rice as secretary of state. talking about susan rice. here's the clip. >> susan rice should have known better and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i would do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> john: that was the man who thought sarah palin was qualified to be president talking about someone who doesn't understand. now not to be outdone senator lindsey graham, the most interesting of all southern republicans i would say came out a few hours later and took a break from his momentarily bouts of sanity to say this. >> die trust her in two ways. if she didn't kn
. every time you hear lindsey graham or somebody saying we've got to stop this, let's keep in mind -- >> bill: they did it. >> part of it. the bush era tax cuts were put in place for only ten years because they didn't want -- they didn't think they could get the 60 votes to extend them permanently. that created this -- a good part of the tax aspects of it. the same thing was true with the payroll tax expansion. they demanded a one-year cut to the end of the extension. there, they happened because of the deal on the debt ceiling last year. >> it came out of mitch mcconnell's office. harry reid went along with it. mcconnell voted for it. john mccain who is a big critic of the defense part of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president
provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> stephanie: i'm telling you he's a fan of american president president. >> announcer: stephanie miller. >> he did mention eating sand. >> stephanie: that's real leadership. that's not sand. >> sound bite: people want leadership mr. president genuine leadership. they'll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. they're so thirsty for it. they'll crawl through the desert like a mirage. >> cenk: youmirage. >> stephanie: you guys know how this ends. >> they drink the sand because they don't know the difference. >> stephanie: way out of your league bob--what is his last name. >> i've never seen the movie bob woodward? >> you're fired. >> stephanie: bob rumsford, and i'm running for president. >> mr. president, you're going to
graham whether the republicans immigration policy cost the g.o.p. on election night and cia director david petraeus suddenly steps down on how the resignation impacts the investigation into the benghazi attacks. >> because of your honor, men are alive and-- >> we salute our veterans with medal of honor recipient dakota meyer. ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [applaus [applause] >> thank you, thank you very much. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. well, i have a great new recipe i tried out this week for fried crow. i've been eating a lot of that lately. like a lot of conservatives across the land, i really thought mitt romney was going to be elected president. well, i was quite wrong and so were most of the conservative observers and commenttators. so, america has made a choice. now, let's be clear, it was not the choice that i was hoping for, but now what? we did it without bloodshed, bullets, we did it without people with boots and badges dragging us through the streets. of course, now, the hand wringing begins as republican whine about mi
the nation" today lindsey graham said while republican was not support raising taxes, they would consider other ways of raising revenue as part of a comprehensive plan. >> failure is not an option for the country when it comes to fiscal cliff. >> glor: house speaker john boehner held a conference call with his members telling them compromise was needed. obama senior advisor david axelrod called boehner's comments to members encouraging. >> i think there are a lot of ways to skin this cat so long as everybody comes with a positive, constructive attitude toward the task. >> glor: if the automatic spending cuts happen, exactly 50% of the board without fall on the pentagon. national security correspondent david martin lays out what that would mean. e> reporter: the dreaded sequestration would double the $500 billion in cuts the pentagon is already planning to make over the next decade. defense secretary panetta has not minced words about what that would mean. >> if a sequestration is allowed to go into effect it will be a disaster for national defense. >> reporter: according to panetta the ne
. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. megyn: but if the president believed that their best intel five days after the attack suggested the video was to blame, then why did we see this moment in the presidential debates, the second one, where he claimed he was calling this terror from day one? >> i think it's interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack he went in the rose garden and said that this was an act of terror. you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. it was not a spontaneous demonstration. is that what you're saying? >> please proceed, governor. >> i want to make sure we get that for the record, because it took the president 14 days before the he called the act of terror -- >> he did, in f
to this game. >> lindsey graham said that exact statement a month and a half ago and it will mean absolutely nothing. i think the republican party as a national party is on a death spiral. if there was someone who could make that determination hey we've got to reach out to latinos. we've got to reach out to single women. we got to reach out to african-americans not just put them, you know, find a couple and put them on the stage at the convention but have policies that in some way are not antagonistic towards these people. even if there was a voice within the republican party of saying, they're incapable of doing that. there is too much mis-aligned agenda in the party. they've created a frankenstein. it's now running through the streets, and there is nothing that dr. frankenstein can do. >> cenk: i think dr. frankenstein was slain last night, but you're right giving back to the republican convention when the camera would scan across the audience, it was exclusively moon monochromatic. and tokenism was the theme of the moment. it was obviously a failed effort. let's pivot the republican party
mccain and lindsey graham of south carolina are threatening to block the nomination of susan rice if the president wants her to be secretary of state which i don't think is going to harassment i don't know why he wants that. >> right. >> bill: the president got mad and said ambassador rice is a great american and if you are going to blame anyone blame me but you can't blame me because it's all under investigation and the investigation clear me when we get around to telling you about it which will probably be in 13 years. >> he did kind of the same thing in that republic presidential debate. instead of susan rice it was hillary clinton. the week leading up to that there had been all of this sort of different stories coming out between the white house and the state department. the white house saying well, you know, requests about diplomatic security don't really go through us. that's more through the state department. and then there was tension there and then when obama was asked about it, you know, do you stand with secretary clinton you know yeah the buck stops with me. every time
of the nor'easter pounding the east coast at this hour. and former penn state president graham spanier was arrested on charges of trying to hush up sex abuse allegations against jerry sandusky. he has been released on bail. now we're going to take you back to "hardball." >>> welcome back to "hardball." maybe the only people more depressed than republicans today are comedians nail miss out on the comedic potential of a romney administration and also lost old friends last night, todd akin last night, joe walsh, allen west. bill maher warned us about the risk last week. let's take a look. >> that's it. that's the election. it is your choice, america, because for me it's a win-win. if it's obama, america wins. if it's romney, comedy wins. >> well, last night america won, comedy lost, you might say. bill maher the host of "real time" an amazing television show. with bill maher on hbo. bill, karl rove has offered some material. is he the baghdad bob of the 2012 election, the last guy to admit something's new and something bad is happening? >> it was a little hitler's bunker, wasn't it? i wan
? lindsey graham, john mccain and the departing joe lieberman. i don't know of any other voices in the national political scene who are saying we can't leave. we have to do as long as it takes and stay there forever. there's no public support for it. >> because of this scandal, i just -- i mean, one of the things that you hear from veterans groups, that people outside the military i don't think seem all that comfortable talking about is the personal toll of these long deployments over multiple years on people's personal lives. young veterans bemoan the rate of divorce among veterans. how difficult it is to sustain a family and relationships. i don't know why we think it's easier for top commanders than your average infantry man trying to hold his family together. is this potentially -- we tend to defer to the military's own judgment on these things. we ask the commanders on the ground for their own opinion, but is this not another occasion for civilians to say, this is done in our name. the military isn't fighting this war because it wants to, because they want us to be fighting
a consensus. it sounds like schumer and graham will be working on some kind of plan. >> bill: our numbers are so short. one of the first things george w. bush did was put in an immigration reform package in front of the republicans and congress killed it because the talk show hosts went crazy with amnesty. remember that. >> oh, yes. >> bill: big protests. and trent lott and others just -- had just dropped it. >> i think they feel now they have no choice. they either do it or they're done. >> bill: so think progress is going through the other things on your site. has your name on it. texas megachurch pastor. >> oh, boy. you know you're in trouble. robert jeffers what's his latest? >> this is a guy you'll remember, at the voter summit back in 2011 was a big rick perry supporter. we saw rick perry romney fight in the primary. introduced him. and said after to reporters including think progress that mormonism was a cult. that real christians have a real choice in this election. between rick perry presumably
rumbling on that topic. >> bill: the phrase i see a lot today is broken brand. lindsay graham was one of them. schmidt and stevens said we have to look at this republican party and our outreach when you look at, for example president obama getting 93% of the black vote. 71% of the hispanic vote. 55% of the female vote. 60% of the young vote. isn't this -- let's say to be polite, this conversation is going to be taking place within the republican party if not a real war right? >> yes. it could be a conversation. it could be a war. it could be be something in between. here's my sense of it right now. presently. i think the first thing republicans have to ask themselves a threshold strategic question which is separate from outreach. do you want to be a presidential party or do you want to content yourself with being a house majority party? and possibly competitive in senate races? now, that's a strategic choice you could make. you could say look, we have the 2010 census redistricting. we have a certain number of seats.
. >> stephanie: wow. we have been talking about the demographics. i think lindsay graham said it they are running out of old angry white guys aren't they? >> it's what i told y'all, the first time i ever made a prediction in public or private, because -- of course -- >> stephanie: what is the point of saying -- >> the reason that he won was go tv. and they had an organization. i got a call -- i came in out of the mountain at 2:00 on tuesday to vote, and i got my first in my history my first old fart call. they called me -- they called me from obama and wanted to know if i had a problem getting to the polls, and wanted to come by and pick me up. >> stephanie: fortunately you don't have a very distinctive voice. >> oh, god -- no they just did a great job. and last week i was counting on -- they set up at virginia tech that the lines were two and a half to three hours students coming out to vote. >> stephanie: yep. >> but a lot of it has to do of course, your show -- >> stephanie: it's mostly my show. >> the conservatives control the radio airwaves and cable t
